Description

    Skylab II (SL-3) Flown Silver Robbins Medallion Directly from the Personal Collection of Astronaut John Young, Serial Number 016F. This stunning 35mm sterling silver medal is in its original plastic case with the "016" sticker on the bottom. There were just 159 of these sterling silver medallions minted of which only fifty-five flew on the mission with crewmembers Bean, Lousma, and Garriott. The obverse features the mission insignia, Leonardo da Vinci's famous "Vitruvian Man" hovering above a half-Earth/ half-sun disk with the surnames of the crewmembers above and "Skylab II" below. The reverse depicts the Skylab station with the July 28-September 25,1973, mission dates engraved. This medal traveled nearly twenty-five million miles during its fifty-nine days in space. The serial number is on the rim along with the sterling and Robbins hallmarks. Excellent condition.

    Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Certification from John Young stating: "I hereby certify that Skylab II (SL-3) silver Robbins Medal, serial number 016F, was flown aboard Skylab II (SL-3) July 28-September 25, 1973. I obtained it through the Astronaut Office and it has been a part of my personal collection since the mission."
